The new coffeemaker makes better coffee, but it’s also delivered at about 170ºF. I can’t drink it until it drops to 140º.
So far, I’ve tried:
[li]freezing the mug overnight (not enough heat absorption)[/li][li]putting an ice cube in the cup (have to remember to make the coffee a bit stronger)[/li][li]making cream cubes by freezing half-and-half (works fine but freezing does something to the cream and it looks unappealing)[/li][li]adding a bit of ice cream (have to keep it on hand; get sticky hands from handling carton and scoop; adds sugar, which I normally don’t take)[/li][/ul]
I’m considering whiskey rocks. How do you cool your coffee enough to sip it? What do you do at Starbucks?
